    Lindsey Ball I’ve owned a bicycle for as long as I remember, but I really got back into cycling after completing the Sky Ride in 2011 - I really enjoyed cycling through a traffic free town, and after the event...I was hooked! After the Sky Ride, I started participating in local Breeze bike rides and I eventually became a Breeze Champion myself. Thanks to Breeze, I've made some lovely friends, found cycle routes (and coffee shops) that I didn't know existed and I now ride my bike regularly for commuting and pleasure as often as I can.

    Linda Goddard Hello,
    I am passionate about encouraging people to get on their bikes. I see Breeze rides and Local Skyrides as a way to do this and to provide fun at the same time. I particularly want to encourage more women to get in the saddle!
    Cycling is not only a way to get fit, but is also good for the environment. Think of the petrol saved!
    It is also a social activity, where you can make new friends and be encouraged along by other riders.
    My aim is to support both new and returning cyclists to gain the confidence to cycle more often.
    I look forward to meeting you on the rides.

    Indigo Kelly Hi,

    I really enjoy cycling as it makes me feel good.

    Whether I cycle for a few miles or loads of miles, it's just good to be out and about.

    I know it might sound cheesy BUT I love meeting new people and sharing stories - especially funny ones!

    Whether you are a beginner who would like to have a bit more confidence about getting on your bike or perhaps you are confident about cycling but don't like busy roads or maybe you just want to ride with like-minded women - come along and see what you think.

    Remember:

    you will receive a warm welcome and lots of encouragement

    the riders stick together so that no one gets left behind - we start and finish together

    the rides will be appropriate to ability levels and can be altered as needed

    I hope to see you at a ride - when you're ready.

    Kindest regards, Indi. :-)

    PS I am amazed to say that I recently completed John O'Groats to Lands End (931 miles in 13 days) and the pic shows me at JOG - keen to get going!
